Nouakchott Oumtounsy International Airport is going green. The platform now operates partly on solar energy. The system that produces this clean electricity was commissioned a few days ago by the renewable energy supplier, the French GreenYellow. The subsidiary of the Casino Group has installed solar panels capable of delivering a power of 1.5 MWp.
The installation, which will diversify the airport’s power supply, is equipped with a 616-kWh electricity storage system. This means that the new facilities can continue to provide electricity after the sun goes down. According to GreenYellow, the new facility provides 50% of the electricity needed to operate Nouakchott Oumtounsy International Airport.
